For the Lord will not forsake his people, for his great name’s sake, because it has pleased the Lord to make you a people for himself. (1 Samuel 12:22, ESV)
Have you ever imagined God sitting in Heaven with His lightning bolts ready to strike down any who do wrong? If you have, join the rest of humanity. The reality is just the opposite. The Bible is full of promises that can only come from a loving gracious God. Do you sense that in this verse? It pleased the Lord to have us in His family. He enjoys having us around and will never turns His back on us.
Prayer: Lord, I know I can trust You.
